MANILA, Philippines - Call Me Maybe? Because international pop-star Carly Rae Jepsen is coming to Manila for her Kiss Tour on August 7 at the Araneta Coliseum. The Canadian singer/songwriter and breakout pop sensation has taken the world by storm after bursting onto the scene with her global hit single “Call Me Maybe.” Unforgettably catchy, the hit song, which she co-wrote quickly, rose to the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 100 chart where it remained for nine consecutive weeks. Certified quintuple-platinum in Jepsen’s native Canada, the track is also an international sensation, climbing to No. 1 on the iTunes Singles charts in over 47 countries while the official video has over 400 million YouTube views and the song has sold more than 10 million singles worldwide to date.

Follow up platinum single “Good Time”, a duet with Owl City, climbed to No. 3 on the Pop Chart, while the video has racked up over 96 million YouTube views. In Canada and New Zealand, it peaked at No. 1, becoming Owl City’s first number-one single and Jepsen’s second in both countries. Jepsen released her debut album Kiss on Sept. 18 via 604 Records / Schoolboy Records / Interscope Records along with her latest hit single “This Kiss." Billboard recently named Jepsen its “Rising Star” at the 2012 Billboard Women In Music Awards, and she won the 2012 American Music Award for Best New Artist. Jepsen received three Juno Awards and two 2012 Grammy Award nominations for Best Pop Solo Performance and Song of the Year. Carly’s new single, “Tonight I’m Getting Over You” is out now and has a remix version featuring Nicki Minaj. Carly is also touring with Justin Bieber in the United States, before she brings her tour to Southeast Asia, including Japan.
